Spring is just around the corner and I welcome it with open arms. Hellloooo warmer weather! Spring also means baseball...and I love my baseball! I am a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan and I can't wait to see my boys of summer on the field again. Go Cubbies!
Baseball was on my mind when I made the card I am sharing today. The layout is based on the sketch at the Card Maker challenge this week:
The sentiment is a quote from one of the legends of baseball: Satchel Paige. I remember my dad talking about him. What an amazing player! The stamped quote is from Quietfire and it goes so well with the Graphic 45 Good Ol' Sport paper and Kraft paper. The details in the lower right corner were fussy cut from the paper and I used the Spellbinders star die, too:
The inside has the Happy Birthday sentiment- also from Quietfire:
To give it the vintage look, I used Ranger Ink's Distress Ink in Tea Dye, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain along all of the edges inside and out:
Hope you are having a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
